Arsenal.com have revealed youngster Benik Afobe has joined Bolton on a season long loan. The 19 year old forward will make a return to the Championship with newly relegated Bolton following a spell with former Championship side Reading, helping them gain promotion last season.
Having had a run of games during pre-season with Arsenal, the striker also played a key role in England’s U19 Euro Championships.
If past loanees are anything to go by, Bolton is great club for Afobe to spend the season and gain valuable experience. Both Jack Wilshere and Ryo Miyaichi have returned from very productive loan spells with Owen Coyle’s side in recent years.
